(mainly a free verse poem)

Living green hasn’t been my priority,

however this simply shows my inferiority,

maybe even my shameful humanity.

I have called myself a green,

and I have called myself a liberal.

I have berated 4×4 drivers,

and I have been critical of the US.

But really what I should’ve been doing,

is starting from myself.

I have never sorted trash,

or recycled a single molecule.

Is this really who I am?

Just an average hypocrite?
